You just can’t make this crap up
This week, Delaware’s Department of Education had measurably good news about student academics, according to Spokeswoman Alison May: Nine schools made significant gains, allowing those buildings to exit state support programs for low-performing schools.
And this is how they accomplished it – by upping the game on instruction, retargeting the needed resources to strengthen students in subject areas where there was demonstrated weakness.
Or as Gov. Jack Markell explained so well: “With the use of ‘Smart investments’ in the right programs and the leadership of schools that serve our highest need populations can make a difference and help all of our students succeed.”
Smart investments? After 29 years you couldn’t must the intellectual curiosity to see all of the cuts and wasteful spending directives of the last 6 years? Shame on your significantly under-informed editorial posturing. I wish you peace and happiness in your next adventure, but I won’t miss the always wrong headed analysis of education in Delaware that flowed from your pen.
